The Mountains of Mourning, by Lois McMaster Bujold

Postby Omphalos » Fri Nov 07, 2008 3:53 pm

I recently found this online. I have not read every single word that Bujold has written yet, but Im well on my way. This is one of her better works. Well stated and very well thought out, it has one of the most inspiring climaxes that I have ever found. Its novella lenght, so print it out and give it a try this weekend. If you have not read Bujold before, this one will pull you in deeply.

So that's the (Jackson's?) whole of it, under "Chapter 1"?

I like the haiku biblio. That might be fun to try for the Dune books. ;) (Or has it been done?)
